Kogetsudai is a cone shaped sand mound that can be found in the sand garden of Ginkakuji. The name translates to Moon Viewing Platform because it is said that if you were to look at the mound from the top floor of Ginkakuji then it would look like the full moon on a silent pond. The optimal time would to see it would have to be on a night when the full moon is out. Others have also said it to be a Zen representation of Mount Fuji. Either way it is amazing to see this perfectly shaped cone in the Zen sand garden.
